got a Toyota hiace from 98, we just accidentally caused a short by mis-connecting the batteries.
Replaced one battery, both show a correct voltage, but the van won't start. Dashboard lights won't come on, and the starter makes a single clicking noise.
We've checked all the fuses, nothing seems to have burned out. We tried jump starting the van too, but no difference. Any idea how we could diagnosis this?
Edit: I should add the van already wasn't starting before the accidental battery problem (no dash lights and no starting)
Edit2: I also need to add that the tail brake lights are not working either!
